BREAKING NEWS

Breaking news, that’s what the newsman on the TV said, the MOD regret to announce that another British soldier is dead. Another family hearing the knock at the door they always dread. Politicians wax lyrical about their sacrifice more false words they are scum in our eyes.

Breaking news that’s what the newsman on the TV said, a gunman has shot 20 innocents dead. A world aghast at how a cowardly gunman’s scheme, would make these wee angels breathe their last. Politicians clamour to force harsher laws through they are doing it for their own egos not me or you

Breaking news, that’s what the newsman on the TV said, yet another MP caught fiddling their expenses, we all know they are more concerned with lining their pockets than the country’s defences.

Breaking news, that’s what the newsman on the TV said, a famous actor was in a car crash and now he’s dead. In other news a soldier has succumbed to his injuries in hospital and passed away. Why do they wax lyrical about an actor for hours and spend seconds about one of ours

What will it take for this country to listen will they wake up one day to realise that hundreds of brave sons and daughters are missing?
To all those who have lost loved ones in conflicts this country owes you a debt but most of all our support and undying respect
